Backbone - Gravity & Other Myths

16 May 2020 Albany Entertainment Centre, Princess Royal Theatre Buy tickets

Presented by Albany Entertainment Centre

A high-octane spree of physical virtuosity, Backbone tests the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

Staged with a deceptively DIY aesthetic and dispensing of trickery and distraction, this is circus that goes straight for the jugular and leaves no viewer unmoved.

Sexy but sincere, raw yet utterly disciplined, Backbone is proof you can't do the impossible without spending a little sweat.

Backbone examines the various perceptions of what strength is, where it comes from and how it is measured. This frenetic celebration of human interconnectedness will test the limits of strength: physical, emotional, individual and collective.

It is set in the here and now. We won't be transporting the audience to Verona. We are on stag. In a theatre. In front of them!

Backbone is Gravity & Other Myths third work. Their last show A Simple Space, achieved huge international success and has been performed more than 700 times at 98 festivals and theatres across 29 countries.
